Something about Petit Mercado, whether it's the light or the warmth, takes your breath away. So you return to this grocery store and a canteen again and again. And, suddenly, it becomes yours as this one-of-a-kind shop is, above all, a place of life. In fact, people come for coffee in the morning or a glass of wine after work with pals. They pick up a sandwich or a flower bouquet for their wives during lunch.

The founders of this unique shop, Pia and Mano, got the idea for it while traveling through Latin America. They identified a magnet for the undecided at the markets: you can stroll there, have dinner, shop, and meet your neighbors. As a result, they set out to replicate a similar environment, and they were successful.
